Card Two - Father Christmas

Posted by Ruth at 7:00 AM
This is the second of four cards I'll be using for the Christmas Card Extravaganza on Nov. 14th.

The card base is Colonial White though it might not show well in that picture (again, sorry... iphone photo, camera is broken!). The image is from Father Christmas (Close to My Heart) stamped in brown stazeon, which just happens to match the chocolate ribbon from CTMH. I used stazeon in case the people at the party wanted to color the santa later on.

The patterned paper is from Magnifique and the coloured card stock is Pacifica (as is the stamped sentiment). It's hard to see but there's a few silver brads added.

I'm rather happy with the effect. It's a super simple card (the cutting only takes a minute) and still says "Christmas" without using the more traditional red and green!

With today being Hallowe'en I may not get a post out for tomorrow. I have little kids to take trick or treating!! But I promise to post photos of the cuties (even though Kerowyn is now refusing to be one of the three pigs, even after I suggested "princess pig").

Thank you for stopping in!
